That Friday Feeling

I always thought that we consumed more fish and chips (from the chip shop), on a Friday night (more so than on other nights of the week) because by Friday, we were all tired from working all week, therefore being lazy and not wanting to cook. Hence Friday night = a visit to the chip shop, and that that was just another Great British tradition. But today, I learnt that in actual fact, the real reason behind it is that originally, when Christianity became more popular and more accepted within England, we were encouraged to not eat meat on Fridays, which then led to us eating only fish on a Friday instead, and this tradition still lives on today.
